7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is on assignment to anthony mason is here. >> good to be here. >> bernie sanders adoptdominate first democratic debate. he and hillary clinton battled over everything from wall street to gun control. >> the other three candidates were left largely on the sidelines. nancy cordes is at the las vegas resort where the debate unfolded last night. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this was a morehig high-octane debate than some expected. hillary clinton came under fire from all sides but that ended up helping her to show some spark and address some big concerns about her candidacy. >> i am in the middle here. lots of things coming from all
7:04 am
directions. >> reporter: clinton laughed off some attacks and combatted others. >> i think we need someone who has the best ethical standards. >> secretary clinton, do you want to respond? >> no. >> reporter: she did respond to a question about some of her shifting positions. >> will you say anything to get elect elect elected? >> actually i have been very consistent over the course of my entire life. i have always fought for the same values and principles. >> are you a progressive or a moderate? >> i'm a progressive. but i'm a progressive who likes to get things done. >> going to that and saying, please do the right thing is kind of naive. >> reporter: former virginia senator jim webb accused him of being naive, with his calls for americans to rise up and demand more.
7:05 am
>> i've got a great deal of respect and admiration for senator sanders, but bernie, i don't think the revolution is going to come. >> is bernie sanders tough enough on guns? >> no, not at all. senator sanders did vote five times against the brady bill. >> reporter: former maryland governor martin o'malley used the issue to showcase his executive experience. >> we were able to pass this and still respect the hunting traditions of people in our area. >> reporter: sanders rebelled after a question about hillary clinton's e-mail controversy. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you. me too. me too. >> enough with the e-mails. let's talk about the real issues facing america. >> reporter: later he said it just popped out. >> some people will say you gave her a big gift. >> i don't know about a big gift. what i said was true. >> reporter: they could become
7:06 am
strong allies in the future and it led some to conclude that the true loser in the debate was vice president joe biden, who is still on the fence because several candidates who are in the race showed the passion and poise that democratic voters are looking for. >> thank you, nancy. at one point hillary clinton defended capitalism after sanders explains why he prefers democratic socialism. >> when you look around the world you see every other major country providing healthcare to all people as a right, except the united states. and i think we should look to countries like denmark, like sweden and norway, and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people. >> but we are not denmark. i love denmark. but we are the united states of america. our job is to reign in the excesses of capitalism so it doesn't run amok and cause the inequities we see in our economic system. but we would be making a grave
7:07 am
mistake to turn our backs on what built the biggest middle class in the entire world. >> "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is in las vegas. we talked to him earlier. >> she was on the offense last knight night. >> she really was. she's been trying to catch up and get her story out, while she was dogged by questions of e-mail and questions of trust. what made last night a distinguishing performance for her was she knew the details of what she wanted to say. she attacked republicans in a way that was pleasing to the audience. she looked like the way a front runner is supposed to look. >> she showed a sense of humor too. the line of the night came from bernie sanders, the american people are sick and tired of your e-mails, that played very well to the room. will that help expand his base? >> it takes a village, and she got an assist there from bernie sanders. i think it helped within the
7:08 am
moment, in the context of the debate, which is what she needed. in other words, she had two goals last night, one was to play offense, to dictate on her terms what they would talk about, but she also had to play defense on e-mails and flip-flops. bernie sanders basically took e-mails off the table. that's not going to go away, though. she has to testify in front of the benghazi committee. there are new questions about the security of her server. that story is not going to go away. but among democratic voters she basically got her talking point, which is basically that they don't care about it. >> will it help him expand his base? >> what's that? >> will it help him expand his base? >> bernie sanders probably -- what will help him expand his base is that he was constantly on message about the billionaires that he says control the political process. he kept returning to that theme. that's what makes him an
7:09 am
attractive candidate. he was very passionate and commanding on his one big issue. >> if you're vice president biden sitting at home watching this, how does it affect your thinking about whether you get into this race? >> i think it closes an avenue. obviously his big decision is emotionally whether he wants to run. there was also a poll from the idea that hillary clinton was slipping and failing. last night she showed that she could handle a big set piece moment like this. and so today we're talking about her performance and not the huge vacuum in the race that needs to be filled by a white knight like joe biden. >> john dickerson, good to see you out there, thank you so much. our coverage of the democratic debate will continue throughout the day on our digital network, cbsn. investigators are headed to the scene of a deadly plane crash. at least two people died yesterday when a small plane plunged into a mobile home park in florida. surveillance video shows smoke pouring from the home.
7:10 am
gabby fleischman is near the scene in lake worth, florida. gaby, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the crash happened at around 5:30 last night, just north of the palm beach county airport. before the crash several people called 911 describing a low-flying aircraft. the plane crashed into a cluster of mobile homes in palm beach county, florida. witnesses described choking smoke and fire. neighbors ran to help. >> the plane fell into the house. after that, you saw a lot of smoke and a whole bunch of fire, black smoke. we tried to go and save them but there was too much smoke. >> reporter: the impact, captured on this surveillance video, shows the plane coming in at a sharp angle. its wings are perpendicular to the ground. after the impact there is a large black plume of smoke. >> come on, come on!
7:11 am
>> reporter: this man lives in the home and says he was outside when the plane crashed. his 21-year-old daughter was inside the home when the plane hit. he said she did not survive. after everything that happened, i couldn't do anything, he says. investigators pulled two bodies from the wreckage and continued to search for other possible victims. >> what a terrible story. gaby, thank you so much. this morning a wisconsin gun store is liable in the shooting of two milwaukee police officers. the cops won a nearly $6 million ruling in a landmark civil suit yesterday against badger guns. they argue the store was negligent in selling the weapon that critically wounded them. >> the two officers were both shot in the face back in 2009. kunisch lost an eye and norberg was hit in the mouth. >> now other gun dealers throughout the country realize they might have their feet held
7:12 am
to the fire. that's a bonus. >> it's certainly a good step. will it change the way things are done around the country? time will tell. >> time will tell. cbs news legal expert rikki klieman joins us at the table. good morning. >> good morning. >> were you surprised, and why is this such a big deal? >> i was surprised because i thought that most jurors might not really tow the line that has been advocated by gun control people and responsible gun ownership people. at the same time, if you look at the facts of this case, this was the perfect case. it took a two-week trial and a basically nine-hour trial for 12 people to do what congress could not and would not do in years. it's momentous, this decision. >> let's talk about the 2005 law which protects gun manufacturers. how effectively could this change things? >> the law is the law. it's called the protection of
7:13 am
lawful commerce and arms act. it is the strongest piece of gun control legislation. there is no other industry, anthony, not the pharmaceutical companies, not the car manufacturers, not the appliance people, who have immunity from civil liability. what happened here is that these two police officers and the city of milwaukee said enough is enough. you can't just immunize an industry has was done in 2005, in 30 states. but we have to look at the facts, where they say, the jury agrees, that in this gun dealer's store, that they should have known, if they did not know, that this is what we call a straw purchase. >> this store had a particularly bad record. >> oh, my god, one of the worst in the country. and no matter what the atf, the bureau of alcohol, it tobacco, firearms did to cite them over and over, they would just change their name and go forward.
7:14 am
in this case, two people entered the store, one underage, couldn't buy a gun, they come in, and the straw buyer, the guy who actually is going to buy it for him, he actually checks the box that he's not going to buy it for himself, and the guy in the store helps him do it right. you have powerful video. >> will that lead to others in the country? >> this can lead to other lawsuits. this is the second lawsuit ever brought, the first time a gun dealer has been held liable. this will lead other people to feel emboldened that they should go forward. ultimately, is the law going to change? it's not that simple. you're going to need someone who comes in as a president. hillary clinton was very strong last night that if she gets in, she's going to do something about this. others, not so much. >> interesting to see what happens in other court cases. rikki klieman, thanks so much. >> i think rikki should speak
7:15 am
more passionately. this morning planned parenthood is changing a controversial policy highlighted in a string of anti-abortion videos. the healthcare provider says it will stop taking money for donating fetal tissue to researchers. congress tried and failed to cut off funding for the organization. this morning isis confirms a senior official was killed in an air strike. abu mutaz al qurashi was known as the group's second in command. he reportedly died near mosul in august. now isis is calling for a holy war against the united states and russia over targeted air strikes. in a new audio recording released tuesday, an isis spokesman says russia will be defeated. he calls for jihad against the russians and the americans.
7:16 am
the message comes after another close call between russian and american planes over syria. fighter planes from the two countries made visual contact with each other. the two countries are holding video conferences to try to avoid problems. the israeli military move into israeli cities follows assaults where palestinians have been attacking israelis. elizabeth palmer has more. >> reporter: good morning. the violence, which began last month, has left eight israelis and almost 30 palestinians dead. governments on both sides are struggling now to defuse it. captured on cctv, the moment a palestinian drove his car into a bus stop on tuesday, then jumped
7:17 am
out and started hacking at the wounded with a cleaver. just 20 minutes earlier, also in jerusalem, two israelis died and at least ten were injured when two palestinian men shot and stabbed passengers on a bus. at the center of this wave of violence, the al aqsa mosque, one of israel's holiest shrines, was the center of a debate over whether it should be restricted, setting off more palestinian attacks. benjamin netanyahu said, do not be misled about those who want to start a fire in the country. but it may have already started. after israeli forces moved in, it just escalated. video of the violence like this that shows israeli soldiers
7:18 am
shooting a palestinian woman holding a knife, is widely shared on social media, fueling the anger and paranoia. today's deployment of israeli shoulders is likely to inflame the situation even further, especially if the security forces go ahead and restrict palestinian movement and around east engineer you sjerusalem. >> elizabeth, thanks. the chicago cubs are one step closer to the world series than they have been in 130 years. the team from the north side wrapped up its national league division series. >> a strikeout! the cubs win! >> the cubs eliminated st. louis 6-4 last night behind three home runs, the first time they won a clinching post-season game at wrigley field. this morning you can see how the iconic sign of the stadium is

how much money does the government give to the park? >> nothing. >> reporter: so the parks turn to hunting. when american dentist walter palmer killed cecil he was on a private hunt. 30% of fees for private hunts are supposed to be paid to the national parks. >> but in most cases, you find that -- most of that money may be consumed to a large extent through administration costs and fueled directly to conservation. >> reporter: the community is supposed to receive 100% of the trophy hunting fees. this money is administered by the rural district council. we saw his drops. the sun and everything [ inaudible ]. >> yeah. you need to water them. >> reporter: really? >> yeah. >> reporter: there is not enough

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it's wednesday, october 14, 2015. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including more highlights from last night's first democratic presidential debate. did an alternative to frontrunner hillary clinton stand out? plus owe are a oprah winfrey is here. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> she took fire from all sides, but that actually ended up helping her. >> lots of things coming from all directions. >> today, we are talking about her performance and not the huge vacuum in the race that needs to be filled by a white knight like joe biden. >> the ntsb is investigating this crash. several people called 911 describing a low flying
8:01 am
aircraft. it took a two-week trial and nine hours for 12 people to do what congress could not and would not do in years! the violence began last month and governments on both sides are struggling now to diffuse it. according to the brothel's owner, odom had been partying for days and odom had been looking to get away from everybody. >> the cubs are in the national league championship series. >> you don't have words to describe it. the best way i could say, it was sick, man. >> handed out doughnuts and alcohol to lure voters. i think we should try that here. if you get enough booze, you'll feel better about the fact that these were your choices. all right? me and you guys. i tell you what, i think i'm voting for oscar winner j.k. simmons.
8:02 am
>> that is one vote. i'm gayle king. with norah o'donnell and anthony mason. charlie rose is on assignment today. the five democratic presidential candidates debated for the first time last night and two of them did most of the talking. frontrunner hillary clinton and her leading challenger bernie sanders clashed on several issues from gun control to wall street. >> the candidates challenged each other's positions. the conversation was pointed at times, but the tone was, overall, civil. >> is bernie sanders tough enough on guns? >> no. not at all. senator sanders did vote five times against the brady bill. he also did vote, as he said, for this immunity provision. i voted against it. i was in the senate at the same time. it wasn't that complicated to me. >> before this debate, secretary clinton's campaign put out a lot of reversals on positions on keystone and many other things. >> everybody on this stage has changed a position or two. if you are learning, you're going to change your position. i never took a position on keystone until i took a position on keystone.
8:03 am
>> you have three largest banks in america are much bigger than they were when we said they were too big to fail. we have got to break them up. >> i respect the passionate and intensity. i represented wall street as a senator from new york and i went to wall street in december of 2007 before the big crash that we had and i basically said, cut it out. >> secretary clinton, you do not -- congress does not regulate wall street. wall street regulates congress. and we have to break off this. say, please do the right thing. >> no, that's not -- >> naive. >> i think frank was a very good start. tonight, i want to talk, not about my e-mails but what about the american people want. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you. thank you. me too, me too. >> enough of the e-mails! let's talk about the real issues facing america! >> bloomberg politics john
8:04 am
heilemann covered that debate and we talked to him earlier this morning from las vegas. talk about the moment that bernie sanders let clinton off the hook about her damn e-mails. was he right when he said this probably isn't good politics? >> it's a little hard to tell. i think sanders got a nice bump out of that but people who like bernie sanders like the fact he is not going negative. it was the most trafficked moment of the debate in social media on twitter and facebook. i think it was a win/win. certainly like a political in kind contribution to hillary clinton but i think it did sanders a little bit of good and the best moment for him last night. >> john, did you think any of the other candidates had a breakthrough moment? what about the three others other than bernie sanders and hillary clinton? >> i didn't really notice any other candidates on stage. i don't know who you're talking about. >> o'malley. people said he had a pretty decent night.
8:05 am
>> i thought martin o'malley introducing himself to a country who has no idea who he is largely did a decent job of that. if you thought he was in critical condition going into the debate, he got some pulse. he's alive. but i wouldn't say that he did himself -- he did not break through like a carly fiorinaesque way to now he's on the top tier on the democratic side. >> given the performance of hillary clinton and bernie sanders how does this joe biden to enter into the race? >> the joe biden mind reading is going on a while and i'm now reluctant to do it. he is having breakfast with president obama this morning and i'm sure the conversation will come up because the vice president has to decide pretty soon. if he is just engaging the political landscape, this debate and the benghazi committee hearings over the last couple of weeks are going to make the landscape seem more forbidding to him and hillary clinton smacking bernie sanders down in
8:06 am
an aggressive way was trying to send a message to joe biden. she hugged president obama all night long and basically was saying to joe biden, listen, if you're going to come into this race and try to be the natural inheritor of the obama mantle you're not taking that away from me. i'll give you a fight for that and i got that covered so you should probably stay out of the race if that is the way you're trying to get in. >> people said she showed a sense of humor but showed she is not afraid to get in there and mix it up. >> she absolutely did not. look. she is a very good debater and was a very good debater in 2008. the fact she understands the policy and the fact she understands all of the things substantive that she does, instead of getting bogged down in it, it frees her to be her more natural self and you could see that last night a lot. had that kind of a human side of her came out in a way we haven't seen in a lot of press interviews she has done over the last six months. >> john heilemann, glad to see
8:07 am
you. sad you're not here to see oprah. aren't you bummed about that? >> (no response). >> john heilemann, it was wonderful having you. your last appearance on the show. thank you! >> i think he can't hear us. >> he can't hear us. he would not diss oprah that way. he cannot hear us. >> voters may forget what the candidates said last night, but they might remember this guy for a while. ahead why the wizard in the audience is drawing so much attention. >> no car for you, john heilemann! no car for you. >> no car for you.

yeah. belief is a land mark documentary series exploring human kind's ongoing search to connect with something greater than than ourselves. oprah winfrey narrates the program spanning six continents over six consecutive nights. it follows a range of people on their profound journurourneys a among them a hindu woman out of chicago speaking more out of life and what she believes. she heads to india for the world's largest spiritual gathering. >> it was just a few minutes of
8:34 am
conversation, but i felt like they could see inside my heart. and what they offered to me was something that i'll never forget. when it's your time, it will be revealed to you. >> this series really, oprah, is just epic. in the first episode you go from the u.s. to india to budapest, hungary, to australia. it's visually absolutely stunning and the three years you put into it are on so visible. this was so important to you because you put your own money in it. >> it was so important because i was going through a period with the beginning of "own" launching a network where all of the press was saying, struggling network, struggling network. oftentimes, when you're going through a challenge, it forces you, particularly, to go inward and think about what do i really want and what do i want to
8:35 am
achieve? so, for me, the idea of creating a network was to be able to tell stories that really would drop pieces of light into other people's consciousness and show stories and ideas that would connect people. as i was saying earlier, i have seen planet earth on discovery and fell in love with the earth and wanted to do something that would do the same thing, would have the same kind of impact through people's hearts and through their spirits. in part, two pictures. which is the time was working for a show that lisa ling was doing on "own" brought me this idea. i literally had prayed for, all right, god, show me the way, what should i do? three or four days later, this idea came in and i knew that was it. >> what is so great about it, though, it's beautifully shot, number one, as anthony said. i feel like we are eavesdropping on people's conversations. don't you? i feel like we just happened to get a glimpse into what people are doing. >> i'm so excited you all saw it! >> oh, yeah.
8:36 am
>> and it's not just efs droppidrop i -- eavesdropping on their conversations but on their beliefs. i know from my own personal upbringing, that belief defines who you actually become in the world. >> right. >> so you're right. the young man in budapest to the aboriginal grandfather who is teaching his grandson the song line. you see the connection and the connection in all real faith that reveal the character of god is that there is compassion and there is kindness and, ultimately, love. you see the aboriginal grandfather feels the same love and the desire to pass on tradition and rituals to his grandson, as the rabbi feels for his son. there is a saying, even though they live in, you know, opposite ends of the world. >> it's not about religion. it's about belief. >> it's not about religion.
